Sexual freedom for Partner

Has anyone else given their wife/gf her sexual freedom due to your inability to perform?

My ex asked for this, and I wished for a while after that I’d given it to her, and just focused on the ways I could please her, but I was worried about it making me feel more inadequate, and thought maybe with someone else the problem would magically go away.

I don’t have an answer for you, but hope this string continues because I’m considering giving my wife freedom. I’ve googled it, and some guys are actually into that and it improves the sex between the couples.

I think it’s possible it can provide an outlet for the woman to be pleased, and the man to feel less pressure to perform while someone else is taking that place, but it also could prove to be wedge that widens the gap between them, as another person may fulfil her emotional needs too.
